How To Book

The cheapest flights are in late August and early September 2024. But if your travel plans don’t work for those dates, you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a ticket under $2,000.

Either way, you should book your flights using a credit card to maximize flight purchases. Here are some of the best travel cards out right now:

Final Thoughts

This is an excellent deal for a notoriously expensive San Francisco to Seoul route. Air Premia is quickly becoming 1 of the cheapest ways to fly from the U.S. to Asia.

While you won’t have a lie-flat seat, you will have a dedicated premium economy cabin with amenities such as enhanced meals and more legroom.
